What's New in Version 2.0.7
Update now makes app compatible with iOS 5.0 and above.
IT WORKS AGAIN!!
I was very disappointed the last time I updated this app on my iPad and it no longer worked. My 2 year old granddaughter loves this app and kept trying to open it and it would just open and then close. I tried using just the PBS site but it was not the same and way too slow!! So when I saw it could be updated again I did and then kept my fingers crossed. Well, I am happy to say it works!!
I can't wait for Mady to try it tomorrow. I wanted to write this so that everyone who had problems last time they updated will know that it now works.
I thought this would be a fun educational app for my 3 year old son, but I am disappointed. It plays random clips from shows that In my opinion are not even educational. He likes TV and he likes apps on my iPhone, but this one did not hold his attention at all. Almost all of the clips that we saw came from one show anyway. PBS used to be good once upon a time, in the days of nova and the old classic Sesame Street, but they are very poor quality now. In fact, they taught things like how to pull in April fools joke or to trick someone into believing a lie which are not skills I want my son to have an even if they were there not high-priority skills. Letter and number identification, shapes, counting, colors, and things like that are far more appropriate for a child to be learning.
OMG........WHYYYYYYYYYY???!!!! Thank you!!
Thank you for fixing it!! My son loves it and has been asking for it since it stopped working.
Why are you stopping to support iPad 1???? My son loved this app and now no longer works!!!!
Don't get bully by corporate America trying to forcing people to keep buying the latest iPad.
iPad works great but fewer and fewer apps are now not working since they want you to upgrade to newer model.
